Sports Reporter Will Buxton Fired Over Twitter



Sports writer Ted Pedulla was outraged in May when Gannett Newspapers fired him over the phone from the job he'd held for 31 years. Now another sports reporter seems to have been ungraciously terminated, but this time without even the courtesy of a phone call. He claims he found out over Twitter.


Will Buxton has been covering Formula One for the channel Speed for three years. But he apparently only learned that F1 was severing its 17-year partnership with the Fox-owned car channel when other Speed broadcasters took to Twitter to thank their fans for years of support, reports the auto blog Jalopnik.
